The Atlanta Falcons were scheduled to interview interim head coach Raheem Morris for the permanent position on Friday, multiple media outlets reported.Morris has been at the helm of the Falcons since Dan Quinn was fired on Oct. 11. General manager Thomas Dimitroff was fired the same day, hours after the team lost at home 23-16 to Carolina for its first 0-5 start since 1997.Since then, the Falcons are 4-6. They’ve been competitive under Morris, with five of their losses coming by five points or fewer.Morris, 44, was the head coach in Tampa Bay for three seasons (2009-11), ending with a 17-31 record.At least one member of the organization, defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich, has endorsed Morris for the job.
